I have been seeing these cute little decorative envelopes in the scrapbooking section at the local craft stores lately, in different sizes and cool patterns, not your average old envelopes. And every time I think about buying them, I think to myself, “I could make my own….” but I never do, mostly because it is a pain to try and make them fold properly. Well today I went to Michael’s and saw they had a scoring board from Martha Stewart crafts on sale for 50% off, with simple directions to make your own envelopes and even small boxes. 🙂 I had to get one! Since I got home I have been an envelope making fiend! It is so addictive, any paper can now be a cute little envelope! Or a bigger, less cute, but still awesome envelope. I’ve already used one whole sheet of 14×17 paper that I painted on from the Strathmore online workshop with Traci Bautista to make a bunch of envelopes, as well as some different scrapbook papers. I’ve even been playing with decorating the envelopes with washi tape and paper doilies, there are so many options!!
These are just a couple of the envelopes made so far 😉 So much fun!! The scoring board is easy to use and comes with everything you need, except paper. And I am in no way at a shortage with that……lol. I also picked up some new washi/paper tapes from Recollections, alcohol inks from Tim Holtz, and molding paste, lots of fun new goodies!
This is what my table looks like, creative chaos 🙂 Its going to be a fun day!!
